Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Unboxing!
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

7 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

Microsoft has good average ratings for its tablet computers as well as across its entire tablet range compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Five Months Ago

This Microsoft tablet computer has only been on the market for five months. Newer tablets like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

Across all the tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface Pro 3 the internal storage capacitys range from 4GB to 1.1TB, and the average internal storage capacity is 120GB. At 512 gigabytes, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other new tablet computers.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 12 inches, the Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger display diagonals amongst tablet computers of this age. New tablet computers have display diagonals of between 7" and 19".

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 12" tablet computers and we think cheaper tablet computers such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3810953_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might also want to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 4[plb_3874656_price] (12.3") which is also cheaper.

Fairly Large Internal Memory

Across all the tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 the internal memorys range from 1GB to 16GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger internal memorys amongst tablet computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very High Front Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a front camera resolution (numeric) of 5 megapixels, the Surface Pro 3 has one of the highest front camera resolution (numeric)s amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age. The front camera resolution (numeric)s of recently released tablets range from 0.3MP to 5MP.

Chart Edit

2160 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is 2160 x 1440 pixels. That's over three times the display resolution of the most frequently found display resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Across all tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 the best display resolution is 2736 x 1824 pixels and the worst is 1024 x 600 pixels.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not 3G, although this is within the context that most of the other recently released similar spec tablets are also not 3G.

If you are looking for a tablet that is 3G then you might also want to consider the SM-W708N[pl_3341871_price], or the SM-W708[pl_3831081_price] both from Samsung.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 4G

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not 4G, although it is worth noting that most of the other tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 are also not 4G.

If you are looking for a tablet that is 4G then you might want to consider the SM-W708N[pl_3341871_price], or the SM-W708[pl_3831081_price] both from Samsung.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Cheap

The cheapeast similar spec tablet computers that were launched in the last 12 months that we found costs £50 and the most expensive costs £2,409. We think that this tablet computer looks expensive for a similar spec tablet that has been available for the last year.

Heavy

The weights of new similar spec tablet computers range from 240g to 2.7kg. With a weight of 800 grams, the Surface Pro 3 is one of the heavier tablet computers that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3 amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.

Chart Edit

1 Other reason to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

At 5 megapixels, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly typical rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other recently released tablet computers.

We compared this tablet to all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets and we think the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3810953_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this tablet computer rear camera resolution (numeric) is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the Microsoft Surface Pro 4[plb_3874656_price] (8MP and cheaper).
